WORKSHOPS

In ancient times yoga was often referred to as a tree, a living entity with roots, a trunk, branches, blossoms, and fruit. Hatha yoga is one of six branches; the others include raja, karma, bhakti, jnana, and tantra yoga. Each branch with its unique characteristics and function represents a particular approach to life. Some people may find one particular branch more inviting than another” (Carrico, 2017).

                                                               

Whichever branch or tree you follow, be it one of service, devotion, physical, or intellect, Sankofa Yoga and Wellness Center provides workshops + opportunities to engage all kinds of yogis. Here's our Workshop offerings:

DISCUSSIONS ON AHIMSA

When you explore yoga’s ethical practice you begin to understand the Yamas and Niyamas. These are thought of as guidelines, tenets, ethical disciplines, precepts or restraints and observances.

 

As the world continues to experience anger, grief and uncertainty, we at Sankofa Yoga + Wellness Center want to invite you to our ahimsa discussions. Ahimsa means nonviolence. Often when we hear nonviolence it can look so passive + unimportant that we can ignore the subtleties of its power. However it is in ahimsa that we find our courage, create balance, deal with power and powerlessness, explore self-love, discuss violence to others and self, develop compassion, and continue with deep questions for exploration. Ahimsa feels like healing, looks like justice, and sounds like courage. Ahimsa explores what is in front of us and provides us with the language to go deeper into our truths, satya.
